A. If a judicial order, judgment or decree directs that the payment of child support, alimony, temporary support or any similar type of payment be made through the office of the court clerk, then it shall be the duty of the court to transmit such payments to the payee by first class United States mail, if requested to do so by the payee. Such payments shall be mailed to the payee at the address specified in writing by the payee. In the event of a change in address of the payee it shall be the duty of the payee to furnish to the court clerk in writing the new address of the payee.
B. A report of child support payments with a certificate of authenticity executed by the court clerk is admissible into evidence in court or in an administrative proceeding as self-authenticated.
C. A fee not to exceed Twenty-five Dollars ($25.00) shall be charged and collected for any post decree application to initiate an income assignment in addition to any other fees authorized by law. The fee shall not be charged or collected for income assignments requested at the time of the filing of the original petition or entered at the time of a divorce decree. The person entitled to support is entitled to collect said fees paid pursuant to this subsection from the person obligated to pay support through civil proceedings.
